About The Owner

We have been renting through VRBO for 7 years now and enjoy sharing this home with visitors from all over the world. It is our goal to ensure that each guest has a very enjoyable stay.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose La Quinta

We have beautiful weather in the desert, and this home is a great place to relax! This home can also be a very romantic spot with an outdoor gas fire pit that can be viewed while seated in the spa. Inside, there is a gas fireplace in the family room for a cozy evening.

What makes this house unique

Saline pool & spa with waterfall is like swimming in a clean ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks again and we'd love to stay at your rental again. The pool was fabulous.

Thanks again.

Great location, space, price and comfort

  • 5 of 5

My parents and I stayed here for 5 nights so I could go to the Indian Wells tennis tournament, and they could visit friends in the area. The home is very large and spacious, and very comfortable. The two bedrooms are on the opposite sides of the house from each other, and both have bathrooms, so there is a great amount of privacy. The large living room/kitchen area is where we spent most of our time when we were there, and is VERY comfortable and well equipped. We never even used the center of the house, which includes a large dining room and another living room with a really nice piano.

We had our own vehicle - a slightly oversized Buick Envoy, which fit very nicely in the garage. We used the washer/dryer for a couple of loads, which was very convenient. The house is very well equipped with lots of things that you don't have to bring. Lots of kitchen condiments, beach towels, bathroom amenities. So if you forget something, there was likely something there to use. Although we didn't use the pool or backyard, it was very pretty and spacious, and would have been a delight to enjoy. Everything worked perfectly, and the owner gives lots of information, instructions and suggestions in a very helpful book, so there really isn't anything you should need. But she is very responsive if you do have any questions. One thing to note is that the master bathroom does have a handicap bar in the shower, which was very important for my father.

I would highly recommend this home as a very comfortable family rental!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our property for your stay in the Palm Springs area. Spring is definitely one of the best times of year in the desert, so it's no wonder that the BNP Paribus Tennis Tournament is held here every year. We appreciate guests like these very much - they took care of our home as if it were their own. Regards, Pauli

Great house

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed here on multiple occasions, and always check availability here first when looking to get away to the Palm Springs/Coachella Valley Area. The pool and Jacuzzi are both fantastic. We like to hike as well, and there are some good trails in the La Quinta Area that can be done in smaller loops, or much longer (more mileage) hikes as well if yo have the time.

The owner is always quick to respond to questions, and is a pleasure to work with. Will always look to come back,

Not Recommended

  • 1 of 5

wifi didn't work when we arrived. After unplugging, resetting and trying several things the cable company was able to resolve the issue.

Air Conditioning was not working, it took several calls and texts to get the point across that it was not working (versus us not understanding how the thermostat worked) and that with temps heading to 100 degrees this needed to be resolved. Finally a repair man was sent and it was fixed.

SPA stopped working after the pool person was at the house.

Property owner likes to point blame at tenants for issues ("it could have been one of your kids for all I know") which was completely unjustified just added insult to injury with all the issues that we experienced.

wifi stopped working again in the 2nd week, this time it never got resolved and the property owner didn't seem too interested in doing anything about it.

Very dated furniture, appliances, and electronics (1990's at best).

Master BR closed off and door marked "storage", so not really a 2 BR home, but a 3 BR where you get to use the smaller 2nd and 3rd bedrooms, very small bathrooms.

Inside the gated community is nice, but outside the community walls the neighborhood is pretty rough looking.

Overall we were very disappointed with all of the issues we encountered.

Owner's Response: We hope all of our guests will have a great experience - much of this review is not even true! This home was built in 2004 - nothing is from the 90's! We are very responsive to guest issues and available by cell phone 24/7. This guest reported the A/C was not working at 8 pm, and we had it fixed by 11 am the very next morning. When he reported this to us, he said, "The air conditioner has been blowing warm air for 2 days now!" Well, if we knew about it sooner, we certainly would have fixed it right away. Please check our many positive reviews - this guy just likes to complain!! This guest is NOT recommended as a renter!!

Beautiful Outdoor space

Great location with a gorgeous pool area. Owner great to deal with. Home is pet friendly which we were unaware of, so if you suffer from allergies ensure that you bring your meds.

Great Place to Stay- We'll Be Back!

  • 5 of 5

This property was awesome. Very clean and organized, and the owner was professional and easy to deal with. We spent our days in the beautiful back yard at the pool and didn't want to leave.
